"In my vision of hell is being put in a room. And not being able to close my eyes and just having to watch one of the one show after another. Weirdly none of them are on YouTube. I mean, there's very little YouTube footage from where it was. It's not a coincidence. It's because of, you know, would they have to pay for if they, you know, there's a certain amount of money they have to pay if they put these shows on YouTube. So, oh, interesting. After a certain amount of time, they have to come off or trigger some kind of a payment. But it's probably for the best. Well, I thought you were going to retire at the 20 year mark. You're back. I don't know if you leave now. I think now this might be a Lorne Michaels is that season 48. Die on the air. That's how she did. They keep making it easier for you to want to keep doing it, right? Get the summer off, you have guest hosts. That's fun. They hang out with your family a little bit. But it can't, but it's not, it's definitely not easy. Yeah, they made it for, they took it from a ten to a 9, you know? Right. Even during the summer, there's stuff going on. There's questions to be answered and whatever. You know what? And I know this sounds like a crazy thing, but a big part of it for me was I didn't want to go through the emotional upheaval of ending it. I know I

"Well, we'll never get that, but still. And the Wii when you're talking about this is you, me, spade, Farley, Schneider, Norm Macdonald, Tim Meadows, Chris Rock. We were just kind of we knew we knew we were pretty good, but we weren't going to be as good as those guys. So some say that you and Farley quit, you've said you guys were fired, what actually happened? It was kind of like them asking us to quit. They were like, you did your thing. There was a new new people at the network, apparently the guy didn't like me and they didn't like Chris and I just thinking of Farley coming in the office. An office made Chris spade and rock all had a little back corner that we wrote all our stuff and then I remember Chris coming in and he's like see working fire. And I was like, oh, I don't know, man. We'll see. He's like, it's true. They don't like us. No more. Anyways, so they kind of said goodbye to us in a nice way Lorne was great to us. He wanted to protect us, but there was some new dude. I can't remember the guy's name, but he didn't like it. Well, in a weird way, it might be the best thing that ever happened to you. Sure, sure. It probably was a good thing I was on the show. I think I was only on for three, three and a half years or something. As a performer, right? But I had a lot of great shots. They let me do my thing. And then, yeah, it's nice to hit and run. Well, let's talk about so pretty, pretty soon after I think you're out in 95. And in 95, was the first of two movies within a year, both in February, Billy Madison and 95, happy Gilmore 96. Both starring you both produced by bob Simon's written by you and Tim early distributed by universal both just instant classics, especially for my generation of people coming up. First, let's start with Billy Madison. A guy forced by his dad to go back to school. In tamra Davis, film Billy Madison. This is, again, 95. I guess there's so many great moments there. But you and Tim wrote it, I guess, while on different coasts. Where did this crazy idea even come from? And then how does that work? I think I had that idea hey, Barry. My buddy Barry Bernard is back there. He produces a lot of our movies too. Hi. Hello, bernardi. So yeah, Billy Madison. I think I had that idea. I thought I always thought it would be funny for a grown man to be in first grade again and because it just started to be neat to sit without the first graders and have to do what they have to do and be a grown up doing it and seeing being stressed out over elementary school. So anyways, me and Tim thought it was a funny idea. It was kind of like roddy day and you feel going back to school and going to college again. So we had a slight ripoff going that we were ripping off Rodney a bit. But anyways, I would pitch it to people. I pitched it to studio as they'd be like, I don't know about that one. And then somehow we wrote this script and it was dead. No one wanted to do it. And then bob simons, who he did problem child. You guys remember problem child? I loved the problem, Charlie when I was a kid.

"A baseball game or a football game or a basketball game, what do you think the live broadcast does that the on demand clip later on can't? Well, for starters, I think the true sports fan wants the story. And oftentimes more often than not, they want the whole story. So I'm not amazed that people stay up as late as they do to watch so much of this stuff. There's no question that Saturday Night Live clips are very, very well watched. And there's a business in that today, but the avid fans, the Saturday Night Live fans, is pretty much their Saturday nights at 1130 to watch the show. And that's largely because they're young and they can stay up late. Their parents are long since asleep. Mister Avalon, I mean, I have to just ask this, he had so many wonderful people famous people, you know, Billy Crystal, you know, as forwards in your new book. You know, when you look back how you started back in the early 70s, I mean, Lorne Michaels, you mentioned him Barry diller. I mean, who is your mentor? Who? Who do you look back on and really impacted your career the most in your trajectory? Oh, wow, that's a very long list, but I'd say that a few of the people who are no longer with us who are at networks encouraged me to take risks. We're willing to let Lauren and I deal with the sensors directly. So we weren't trying to set new language barriers or not barriers hurt. Television. But we definitely were dealing with issues that you would not normally hear at that at that time, some 50 years ago. So I'd have to say, leadership at that network, people don't often think this way, but I sure do. People who are the bosses at NBC in particular really let Lorne and I do the show. Up next on the show, we've got more with dick ever saw the straight ahead on the Bloomberg business of sports. Michael Barr, you can follow me on Twitter at big bar sports.

"My audition, I had my screen saver on my phone was like both of their jerseys, some collage I'd made to look at. And then what I didn't plan for, I mean, I was totally memorized. I was able, you know, I could do the same set. I had done it the groundlings. But what I didn't plan for being like a lifelong SNL fan, I'd never gone to a show at the opportunity. So they start walking me out to do the audition and I'm starting to walk through the hallways that I've seen during the monologue and backstage of the show. And then suddenly they just walked me around this corner and there's home based. Now I know it's called home base. I mean, at the time, I was just like, that's the stage where the hosts runs downstairs and does their monologue. And so I was like, I had that moment where I was like, if it was any other time, I would have asked the stage manager, can you take a picture of me on the stage, but he was like, okay, I'm gonna count you down. You know, and it was just suddenly like 5, four, three, and then they don't say two over one. And then I just had to go. And I don't remember my first audition. At all. I just, I mean, I did it, but for me, I didn't have the memory. I kind of remember hearing a laugh, maybe, or two, but then, you know, you read all the books and it's like, if you get a meeting with Lauren, that's a good sign. And I didn't get a meeting with Lauren. So I go home, I don't hear anything for a week, and then I hear that they want to fly me back out to New York, they want me to do another test, but this time it has to be a totally new set, you know, because they want to know you can turn over material in a week. And I was like, no, I was trying to be undeniable. That was like my best shit. I gave them 12 things. And this is the thing that was really cool for me. Another sports way that I chose to look at it. I had been performing so many shows at the groundlings. I had been getting in so many reps over that year and a half, and then the year of doing Sunday company, that at that point I'd had so many failed sketches, but glimmers of like, you know what? That sketch didn't work, but I know people like that character or I know that those few lines were really funny, you know? Like it just didn't work. The premise didn't work, but that character worked. And so my whole second audition for SNL, I just feel like was my bench. I just got to get the bench like, got to get my players off the bench and they got to do the second audition. And it was all the kind of weird stuff I like to do. And I also reminded myself before that audition, like, Heidi, you might not ever be back here, so please remember this one. And I just felt like all my bench players really rose to the occasion, had a lot of fun. I remember it. I thought it went great, but then again, I didn't get a meeting. And I fly home, and it's like radio silence for ten days. Wait, hold on. So you read all the books. You're prepared. You know the process. And you know all the beats that should happen. Yes. Yes, I mean, when I was leaving for the airport, no joke 'cause I was staying right across the street from 30 rock. When I was leaving for the airport, I saw people coming back that I had auditioned with the day before, they were coming back from what I assumed was 30 rock and I'm going to the airport and usually I would never be so vulnerable to a stranger, but I did ask a couple of these guys. I mean, now one of them is Andrew best dismisses a cast member of mine, but I was like, did you get a meeting, you know? And they were like, yeah. Yeah, it was weird and how was yours? And as I was pulling my rolling luggage, I was like, I didn't get one. And then like the elevator doors. And I think they said that in the elevator, they were like, oh my God, I think we just broke that girl's heart. Forever. So I go back to LA, I'm just like, it's not going to happen. And on the tenth day of complete silence, I had chosen to go to the grocery store to just those really was true. What I wanted to do was just walk down the cereal aisle to look at like bright colors and nostalgic boxes to try to just be happy. And I pulled into the parking lot and there was a call on my phone from in New York and 9 one 7 number. And I was like, okay, unknown, you know, and I answered it, and it was like, Heidi Gardner, I've got Lorne Michaels on the phone for you. And then I totally tried to act like this was really normal. And so then I was totally like, yes, put them through. Is this Heidi Gardner? And I was like, yes, this is she? And then suddenly it's Lauren and he was like, hi, hi, this is Lorne Michaels, and I'm calling to tell you I'm bringing you on to the cast. And then it's like in the movies where you go totally speechless. And he talks to me for like three minutes about just like what to expect and this and that and then after three minutes I realized I have not said thank you that said one word and so I just kind of screamed like, thank you so much, sir, and he was like, I can tell your own shock, I'll meet you in a day. By the way, you're moving tomorrow in New York. And I was like, oh, yeah. So it was wild. Wait, so he doesn't even ask if you want to join the cast. He's basically like, you have been selected to be at the show. You're moving here tomorrow. And that's it. Yeah, I guess he assumes that everyone's going to take it. I mean, maybe no one's ever, yeah, he didn't ask. He told me, I was like, yep, I'll be there. That would be such a power play to flip it on him. Somebody down the road to be like, oh, so you want me to be on. All right. Can I have like 6, 7 hours to think about this? Can I call you back? Nobody, I guarantee nobody's ever done that probably. No, let me check my schedule and I'll call you back Lauren. Lauren, I'll get back to you. Wait, so what happens to you if you don't make the show? You just trying to get acting parts and what are the next four years look like?

"Enough to be anything other than the scrub, but that was the seduction for me. God, I'd be with my two best friends. We'd have that year and so forth. My dad never got loud, never got forceful. He just said, dick. This is the opportunity of a lifetime. You're going to live in the middle of Normandy. Not that far from where you've lost one grandfather. And probably that far again from where you lost another grandfather in a different World War. And this is a chance for you to go get a sense of what made those men want to go do that. And that pretty much convinced me that that was the right thing to do. Now, if you grew up in a house like that, you're not going to be motivated by who's offering the most at least that was true of me. That makes sense. In the book, I was really interested to see how you wrote about and discuss your relationship with Lorne Michaels because the Saturn and live thing is such a big part of your legacy in the show. And then as the years passed, people just think it was Lauren's show. You were involved in the beginning. You basically saved the show and it was about to die in 1981. And then Lauren came back in 85 and he's been there ever since. There's been a bunch of books and magazine articles about SNL. There's a really good book in the mid 80s about the first ten years. There was a really good oral history about it. Do you feel like your contributions to that show? Have been captured accurately and treated accurately or do you think that just how do you feel about it in general? I feel pretty damn good about it. I mean, through these last, I don't know, 8, ten years, Lauren and I have completely renewed the relationship that we had from the beginning as friends. And he was the first to say that I saved the show. He left of his own volition. He just was burned out. And years later, I don't know, make an 8 or 9. I was burned out. I told him, so I said, I just don't want to do it anymore. And he said, well, I think I might want to do it. I said, well, great. Do it. And he came back and he found that really most important ingredient that he found 8 to ten really gifted writers. And obviously, he continued his record of always being able to find fine young repertory talent. But there was never any ill will between us. I think that

"When encouraged, let me just say this before our time winds up. And that is, I want the people in the audience to go back and look at the video clip from roots, it's entitled something like breaking kunta kinte. That scene opens with Lorne Greene sitting in it was the plantation master sitting in his office and then fiddler comes in and says, we don't want to be too hard on the runaway, kunta kinte is just run away and been caught. And so the time comes for him to get his lashing. And if you look at this scene, it's about 9 minutes. And study the scene. Study the role of everybody or body. Better in this particular clip. And you will find that there is an equivalent role in the political life of our country today. Whether it's on the national level or on the local level, there's the black man who actually does the whipping of kunta kinte. There's the white man who does the whipping. There's the black man who intervened with the boss, man. And tries to save the life of kuza kente. There's kunta himself. Who eventually is forced to admit that his name is Toby, and there's a dozen of bystanders. Black. Or watching. This is a mere powerful thing. And it's an analogy of exactly what is happening in our community today. Let's give those characters names and our community. And call them.

I don't know why that happens anywhere. It's up to lorne michaels discretion. Well apparently lorne. Michaels doesn't like to do that to any comedians from texas..

Cavities delivered the outcome. That the customer was looking cool. I suspect that's exactly right. And he really tries to weave his way into the fabric of the community that he serves and so. He's not one of these car dealers that works fifty miles away from where the dealership is. He actually lives in the area. And so i think takes a lot of pride in maintaining those relationships and i think some of his customers have been with him for decades and decades just because of that bond and of that after the sale relation. Yeah there's a lot to learn from that great example in value right customer. Acquisition cost relative might take them two years to get that customer and to successfully transact an automobile but if he does job the way that he he describes it mean that's a customer for life he exactly and also the acquisition of new customers a lot more work than than the returning customer often. Right yes all right. We'll talk a little bit. We touched on this idea of of resistance to change and ideas fully either becauses resistance to to the change that i bring about talked us a little bit more bad how you categorized the friction as you And and what are some of the things that we should be thinking about as we change our practice a little bit here to implement a new ideas all selling new ideas. yeah Well maybe i just a little bit of orientation about how the two of us came to write this book. So lorne nordgren. My co author. And i are both faculty members of the kellogg. School lorne is a psychologist by background and does a lot of his research on behavior in influence. And we've worked together for many years in anlong wanted to create a project together that heads mutual interest to us and me coming from the entrepreneurship and innovation discipline him. Coming from a psychology background. We were both hustle by white. Is that ideas that are clearly good ideas or ideas and people say they unambiguously desire and market research. What is it that stops those things from actually making it into the consumes hands. Why is the consumers at the very last moment. Sometimes say no to something that they earlier said they desperately wanted and so we started examining the not just the market conditions and other things that surrounded these decisions but also the the psychology the internal forces within a human being that make them resistance to new ideas and change and that led us to creating this model of of what mentioned we. Call the four frictions. These are four headwinds that stand in the way of innovation and change in the four frictions that we landed on. Were number one. The friction of mercia that no matter how good a new idea is or how compelling changes human beings have a very surprising allegiance to the status quo much much stronger than people would think in this always confounds market researchers because in every survey they do every focus group that if people talk about how much they dislike the current solution or how much they realize. The current solution is imperfect.

"lorne" Discussed on Sports? with Katie Nolan
"Other things to tell you. I have a new show. I a new show that i haven't heard a single person talk about. It's very very funny. And i'm gonna go ahead and put my stamp of recommendation on it. It's called the other two it's on. Hbo max it is a comedy. It was originally on comedy central. But they're not very bright and they let it go. it is a lorne michaels produced. I believe and the concept of the show is that a kid in in their family gets famous basically. He's like a justin bieber. He becomes like a except the guy actually sing And it's about his older two siblings and how they deal with the fame and the fact that they're like little brothers really successful as like a youtube pop star in heart. Not one of them's a struggling actor and one of them. I don't even remember what she was doing at the time. It's very very funny. It's very well lou. Well this comes the perfect time. Because i need a new tv show. Yeah it's so funny. It's in the second season now. I think new episodes are every thursday. But it's hbo said It's very funny to the point where i was like. Why is nobody told me about this. And i writing down as we speak. Yes. it's very funny. I also started watching a documentary series on hbo. max. I'm getting really bad at remembering where things are. But the series is called generation hustle. I think and it's each episode. Is the story of a different. Basically conman or con woman con artists. I think katie would be the gender neutral term and they are fascinating now granted. I may have just hit the gym a little hard but i was sucked into the stories. There was this one guy who walked in and basically the cops had to con him into getting arrested. And i was like man. That caught must've been so proud of himself to con- this illustrious con artist but there are people out there walking among us who do not have empathy and boy. Does that terrify me. So i like to watch shows about them so that i can restrict myself into thinking there are warning signs you can catch because i got got once and i'm not going to get got again. So that's what i've been doing so anyway the other two. And then i think the other ones generation hustle. But that's not getting a full endorsement from me because some of the episodes i didn't like i think they're all directed by different people. But those are the things that i'm watching. Let's how i tell my weekends. What a weekend. I've had also went out to dinner. You've done a lot. You've been pretty busy not to dinner with other people Awkward for most of it. At one point i spilled tried to take a sip of water but because the ice had melted in the glass and then kind of solidified re again into like another ice cube of ice and all of a sudden it just it slash onto your face. Yes so i got water all over my shirt pretty early in the dinner. And i looked like i dribbled and so that was embarrassing and then i kinda spent the rest of the dinner thinking about how that was going to reflect on me other than that though. I think i did people that that was my first. I'm hanging out with them. I was meeting. i was like meeting. I was trying to dance friends for the first time. And i am dribbled. So that's i mean like. I said it was a eventful weekend. He yeah now. We're getting into this. Sad stuff. Also got really really bad news on friday that i can't say but also will eventually so it's like this was could have been a really bad weekend but i think but it seems like you pivoted. Pretty try saying i tried. I tried so very hard. I still have a lot of cleaning to do that. I'm just kind of staring at. Oh it's like. I have this morning where you know. How like after you've been gone for a few days and unusually so you're just sits there for like three weeks because you don't empty eh. I had to force myself to do laundry this morning. Because if i didn't. I would actually have no clothes so that was rough. That's the problem with. I have so much clothing. Just a crude from people being like one or this on tv. And then i have it that like i can get away with not doing laundry for a while. But that's a bad thing because If i had to do if i had less close. I be more motivated to keep everything in. I've come to realize that. It doesn't really matter how much i have in my closet. I wear the same three t shirts sweatshirt and one guy wear the i hold onto close because i'm like someday. I will need exactly ready if i get rid of it. Well this week. I've been trying to wait until i can identify the mood where i'm like. I wanna throw some stuff out. And then i just focus on one part of my like my pants and i went through all of my pants the other day and i donated probably three quarters of them and now i just only have a couple of pairs of pants which is like good. If you need a different pant get that pant but stop holding onto these pants. That are not meeting your needs you. Just don't wanna get down to having two pairs of pants complicated relationship with everything. My dad's mom. I'm fairly certain would today be classified as a hoarder. So i'm constantly fighting this. I think genetic desire to hold on to everything and not let it go. Well the hard problem. I i can do sentimental value in the stupidest things. I went on my talk with his shirt. I can't get rid of this shirt issuing this curve pants and have a giant stain on them. That'll never come out. I can't get rid of them. Because i wore them to that one party that how about this. How about this. I think you will be able to relate to specific agony that this is. I wore a dress on television for the super bowl. It was the most eyeballs who've ever been on me at one time and it was the most compliments i've ever gotten on a thing that i wore. Everybody was like that dress absolutely rules. Where's that dress from. I love that dress. When can i wear that again. Everybody saw i was on the super. It can it but they also said the nicest things about it. So it's like should i wear it every day. Can i never wear it again. Do i wear my closet. And i look at it and i'm like remember remember when this life was going to be forever remember when tv looked like it was going to keep being a thing forever. Never thought someday. Someday i'll be john stewart. Ha ha ha. You'll never wear this dress again. So that's where i'm at i'm like solidly on the fence. Between do an awesome in doing so bad. So that's better than being on one side of the fence travis. How'd your weekend. Would you do college football baby whilst technically not even over yet because you got game. Monday night I watch cultural from it was on. I watch trouble. That's what i did That all i did catch your ohio state. Football team plan while i did watch watch to just haven't done. Well this is. This is before we get to before we get back doing better. Talking is Much.

If you missed it, Green Bay advanced in the postseason. They won 32 to 18 over the Los Angeles Rams will go to the phone lines here in a little bit 855 to 124227. Think Urban Meyer is a great coach. I don't want anyone to hear my criticism of urban Meyer taking the Jacksonville job as one that I don't think urban can coach Urban can obviously coach And that's not just the old Well, you wanted Ohio State and you want it. Florida He wanted bowling green he won at Utah, like Urban Meyer is one of the greatest college coaches in the history of the sport. He coached at bowling Green for two years. They went 17 and six He coached it Utah for two years. They lost two games and one in the Fiesta Bowl. He even went to Florida and put together one of the best dynasties and the last 30 years of the sport. And then went to Ohio State and the Big 10. It had 1.5 national champion since 1969. And added another one. So the big tent So No question or American coach. My complaints for urban Would be this. There's a learning curve. I'm sorry. If you're going to be in college as long as he was and then make the jump to the NFL. There's going to be some things that you don't know in the first year. You're gonna have to catch up to where everybody else is. Also due to his health. History. Is he a guy that you can guarantee is going to be here for the second contract. Trevor Lorne's Because of Lawrence's what the pundits and the experts and the scouts tell me he's going to be. That's a quarterback that you think you're gonna have a chance to win Super Bowls with and I say Super bowls as in plural. Do you want a coaching change? Just when you think he started ahead, his groove and really starting to hit his stride at age 24 25 years old, I wouldn't hire Urban Meyer. I think this was the owner. Wanting to go out and make a statement. Hey, this is a new day for the Jacksonville Jaguars. Look, we got urban Meyer. Become coach. We got Trevor Laurence. This felt like a moved to me. That is a little bit more sizzle than substance. At the NFL level. I wouldn't want a different direction. I would have hired one of the offensive minded coaches and I would have really looked between Arthur Smith. Who got the Falcons job. Brian Table Who's the offensive coordinator for Buffalo? Who I think's going to get the Jack. I think I think Brian Table is going to get the Chargers job. Once Buffalo season's over. I think they're going to hire Brian Table. Would have hired a guy who I think Can be Andy Reid. To Trevor Lawrence's Patrick Mahomes be the Sean Payton to Trevor Lawrence's Drew Brees. And I'm thinking of the next 10 to 12 years. And swinging absolutely big for a guy I know can get the most out of this player. That's what I would have done. I'm also not the owner of the Jacksonville Jaguars. She's not the move I would have made. We'll see how the urban Meyer experience works. They're getting a quarterback next year, and they have $70 million in cap space. So Jacksonville can get really good, really fast in a hurry. It's gonna be interesting. Jacksonville's going to be on Sunday night football on Monday night football and they're going to be a team that we're gonna have our island because they're gonna have a lot of story lines this year. It's going pharmacy up, plays out. Let's go to the phone lines 855 to 1 to 4 to 27. Adam is in Jacksonville going, Adam. Hey, I just want to call and I know you were saying about urban. Um, I know you have your apprehension about this guy, but In my mind. I think this is a great higher for our team. Our franchise, our city. And to make it a simplistic It's possible that we've been hearing this here locally is Some people, you know, kind of said Well, how are you gonna do transition to the NFL? You said it yourself. And Covered players say this goes there is football at the end of the day, bro. It's football, his adjustments from college to NFL and what are you talking about? Hash line or overtime versus college. I think that he is a visionary when it comes to offense of schemes and what will be able to Internet I think he is a leader of men. We have one of the youngest rosters. In the NFL, and I'm just looking forward it for him to come in there and make his imprint on it. I'm not so much concerned about his health. I'm not so much concerned about what his contract situation is. Just one of the big move for us, and I honestly think that this is just gonna do nothing but increase is like our our our chances of winning coming in the next few seasons. I appreciate the phone call Adam, I I certainly understand the optimism like.

Celebrating The Class Of 2020
"Twenty twenty was a year of big changes for me as well. I took on hosting the show. It's almost been half a year and time has really flown. I remember when i found out that. I got the gig. I was buying pajamas. The official outfit and university of twenty twenty when the call came in and i yelled into my phone what And then there were a few other choice words I won't share here. I then went. And i grabbed a second pair of. Pj's a celebration gift to myself. And every time. I put on those. Pj's i think of that day it was a good moment. Another great moment was earlier. This season when i got a chance to speak with actor lorne cardinal who won the imaginative august schellenberg award of excellence. The award recognizes the work of an indigenous actor whose work celebrates the spirit and commitment that schellenberg showed over the course of his career. One of lawrence. Most recognizable roles is sergeant davis. Quinton from the hit. Tv show corner gas. I asked him if he thought taking on. The role of davis changed the course of his career. It did it did in the fact that just national recognition and from all all people they just know really like davis and the davis is basically my version of a pachinko clown. That's how i approached him. Was everything was exciting to him. Everything was new and fresh. That's where he gets so excited all the time because he's actually excited. He loves it totally. he's never halfway with anything. He's all in or nothing. And i mean what a gift to be able to play like a funny indigenous character right because frequently it is. It can be a lot of the same note. I think for seven dizziness actor so to be able to play you know a lovable clown and just live in that world of comedy for all of those seasons and still even now. Because you're doing the animated show right physical comedy. So i was able to bring those chops in as well with that innocent so i was throwing stuff in there and they were kind of like okay. Slow down there turbo easy. Then i can do okay. I'm like that if anyone gives me a prop it's all over. Couldn't find out what it does one of my favorite episodes of security cam. When i got to play with my keizer and i got the police. Shield is well. So how can they have fun with this dropping my hat and bend over and like getting myself into the throat with the police. Shield all the time and then trying to get into the car with the police. Shield while i'm into ended up seeing myself in guide to help me get out behind the wheel behind the glass in the driver's seat. When okay i'm getting phobic now you know it's one of the things. You're blessed with incredible writers. The comedy writers in canada working on that show so we didn't have to do any improvising or anything like that was all scripted and we stuck to the script and we made choices not to bring up the indigenous background of davis. He is what he is. The only time we did we did do. It was a great cup episode. Where davis leaves the tickets for the grey cup somewhere. And they're at the game and he can't find him and stuff in my partner tear. Is you know. Maybe they're in a glovebox. No because they're for gloves. They're not there and i said well i'm just go over there and get them off that person over there and then and tears go no. You can't do that you can't go scalped tickets. You can't do that and i go. Why because of macree man and she goes no. Because you're a cop and it's illegal in but in that scene original scripts said why. Because i'm a native man and so we had the discussion said i don't identify myself. As a native man i'm a crewman. So that's how davis would respond. I'm a man put. The writers wanted no no. We need a native. i said okay. So every take we did i said crewman producers. Come up to me. Say okay. Let's not just give them one so they have it. In the canon. The writers will be happy. Oh sure yeah okay. Let's do it again. I just would not budge on that. Because i know if i did it once they would use that one so i didn't give them any option and i explained. I said this is how i view myself is davis would view and so he doesn't say he's a native man he says he's creek like backwards heritage in one of the episodes. They wanted me to say the eskimo debate came up. And i said i'm not saying eskimo so again i had to defend my stand because i didn't want other people could say it but you know this is a derogatory remark to our brothers and sisters. So i'm not gonna. I'm not gonna say that. I'll say i'll say in you it.
Apple WWDC 2021: Will It Be Virtual & Free?
"I would have to guess that w. wdc twenty twenty. one is almost certainly going to be a virtual event like last year's and will but let's flash forward another year like blood. And i think it's very realistic to think that. By june twenty twenty two cova is past tense and we remember that is w. w. permanently a virtual event. I don't know how to predict on that. Because i could see it both ways. I think there's aspects of the in person experience that are irreplaceable from my personal perspective in the media and getting to talk to people In person i mean. I'll still talk to apple people in person. they'll still have press events. The keynote may well involve be more like a traditional in a virtual post covid world might be exactly like the iphone events where the only people who attend in person are the media right. And it's at the steve jobs theater in you know with three or four hundred people. Instead of five thousand people so that aspect of it. I'm sure we'll still be you know. Replicated post covid. There's so many people in the developer community who i know and it both at a personal level but at a professional level where i i hear things i learned things you know it. There's certain aspects of real world interaction and trust that. Don't happen without being real. And i would miss that. I still remember when i seven was announced. Me you guy. English lorne brickner and a couple you know. Gpu savvy friends. Standing in a bar trying to figure out how they were injecting all the transparency and calcium blur into the system. You just can't do that. Virtually i do remember that. My guess is pretty bad but yes guy trying to figure that out pretty good. Yeah yeah and watching. Learn like move his thumb down to. Yes yeah i don't know what do you think what's your gut feeling on long you know. What would apple's thinking about this. I think and i say. I think but i also hope because you know someone newly indy. The idea of having you know. I still have no idea how to save. Spent any of this travel stuff myself. They don't have a giant media company. Pain for everything anymore but i think a hybrid model just given how good the production value was like. I went back and looked at some previous events and the stage. Experience is great but it doesn't look as visually stunning as what they did this year. And i'm sure we'll get into how they progressed and got better and better at the events over time but they really started upping the ante on how you could do these sorts of things as stream only events but i think for the consumer stuff it still makes a lot of sense to present that and for developers because five thousand isn't out of the millions of apple developers. The amount they can reach. A virtual event is significantly higher. That i wouldn't be surprised if they have a hybrid model where people do come gather for things that they really need to like for brand new products that require hands on where they want to give you a tour of the audio facility or eventually maybe a our facility or something. I think that'll make sense to do in person. But i think as much as possible if they can project this sort of stuff to the world. It's it just invites everyone into like a really first class experience.
How Climate Change Is Setting The Stage For Natural Disasters
"In addition to being the year of covert twenty twenty was also a year of extreme wildfires and hurricanes in part because global temperatures were among the hottest ever recorded. here's npr's lawrence summer. If you caught the weather report in phoenix arizona visit you heard one number over and over alright jamie. We are hoping for weather. But i know just hovering around these hundreds. It was over one hundred degrees a lot on a record breaking one hundred and forty five days all well. Basically almost everything set records. Marvin percha is a meteorologist. At the national weather service in phoenix. I've lived here a long time. I grew up here in the seventies. And i've never seen anything quite like this. Phoenix also doubled. The number of days at spent above one hundred and fifteen degrees and those extremes are dangerous. Almost three hundred people died because of heat related causes in maricopa county another record number certainly with the overall warm earth. It makes it more likely to get these extreme temperatures and those temperatures set the stage for other disasters. Twenty twenty hurricane season has been uniquely awful. There have been thirty named storm so far a new wreck. Warm waters in the atlantic fueled the most active hurricane season on record and many storms intensified quickly building strength faster-than-expected. The records kept falling in the western u. s. two or wildfires burned more than nine million acres. Tens of thousands of people fled their homes. Some with only minutes to spare three states california oregon and colorado had the largest fires in there recorded history. Dan mcevoy a climatologist with the desert research. Institute says heat was one of the reasons when you have elevated temperatures and extra dry atmosphere. That really makes the fuels more flammable. An easier to burn a hot dry atmosphere is thirsty. He says it's like a sponge pulling moisture out of plants and soils that creates the conditions for fires to move fast and burn hot on the landscape in the west is normal. We need that fire but the thing that's changing is how quickly they become. These large megafires mcevoy's done studies showing how he will dramatically increase. This fire danger in the west but even he's surprised to see it. Play out so quickly this year is i mean. How many times can we say the word. Unprecedented christina doll is a climate scientist at the union of concerned. scientists events. Like that make it really hit home for climate scientists that this is not just something theoretical that. We're predicting it's something that we are living through. Twenty twenty is basically tied with two thousand sixteen for the hottest year ever recorded at almost two degrees above average but whether it takes the top spot is beside the point though says the last five years or the five hottest on record since eighteen eighty. And it's only expected to get worse for me personally. I think that there's not going to be one. wake up. call that spurs the public in the us. And our policymakers into action. It's more the accumulation of all of these events and all of the heartache as incurred because of them that heartache she says should be a reminder that the more fossil fuels are burned. The more years like this. We should expect to see lorne summer npr news.

Indian Prime Minister Lays Cornerstone For Controversial Hindu Temple
"India's prime minister made a rare pandemic era trip out of the capital. Today he went to a northern Indian town called Iot. Ah It's where Hindu extremists tore down a sixteen th century mosque nearly thirty years ago now. Hindus are building their own temple on that very spot and the prime minister laid the cornerstone NPR's India correspondent Lorne Fair housing from iota in the past and his following the news there today and joins us now. Hi, Laurin. Hi, good morning. Good Morning. So can you just put what happened today in the context of this place in its history? Yeah. So I not as old quarter is. This beautiful Warren of multicolored alleyways, housing, small temples, and Hindu faithful believe one of their gods Rahm was born there. But actually it's one of the most sensitive places in all of India for hindu-muslim tensions and that's because there used to be this huge triple domed mosque right in the middle of town it was built in the sixteenth century but in one, thousand, nine, hundred, ninety, two, Hindu extremists, tore it down riots spread across India and thousands of mostly Muslims were killed. He knew nationalists have long wanted to build a temple on those ruins and today they started doing
How The Coronavirus Pandemic Is Affecting Environment
"Since the pandemic hit air travel in the. Us is down ninety five percent the morning rush hour. Traffic report has become a necessary. Many of you are asking what impact all this is having on the environment. So Lauren summer is with us. She covers climate change for NPR. And it's good to have you back. Lauren Hi Ari. Let's start with a question that a lot of listeners have asked this one comes from Walker in Ames Iowa the oil consumption due to know car travel and almost no air travel must be much less. Is this lack of carbon dioxide production low enough to meet the goals of the Paris accord is more than enough just to remind listeners? The goals of the Paris accord that was to keep global temperatures from going up two degrees Celsius with an aim of less than one point five degrees Celsius What's the impact of this slowdown of the global economy? Lorne yes so as you might expect. It is having effect on global carbon emissions largely because demand for oil and coal has really fallen. And this is all over not just a US right. I mean so. Scientists are starting to put out studies projecting. What would this look like by the end of the year? If activity continues you know we all stay locked down a little bit and they're coming up with maybe an eight percent drop in carbon emissions For this year now okay. That would actually be unprecedented. I know it sounds like a small number. That's bigger than the drops during the last recession or World War Two But here's the thing that is about the level scientists save. The world needs to be cutting emissions every year until twenty thirty to avoid the worst impacts of climate change. That's you know that one point five degrees Celsius that you mentioned and I think scientists are also pointing out you know shutting down. The economy is not the way to kind of reach. Those long-term emission cuts right right. These bigger and missions changes like switch to renewable energy. Okay we got a lot of questions. Also about some of the short-term environmental impacts of the pandemic. This one comes from Lois in Raleigh North Carolina. This is the most beautiful spring filled with crystal clear low humidity days here in. North Carolina is having fewer cars on the road or the factories closed affect the weather brought about the global shut down factories. Might that be affecting the weather here. I've heard a lot of people wondering about this actually clearer. It is yes in a lot of cities it's gotten cleaner you know. People are driving less in some cities. I mean car. Traffic is down. Forty fifty percents. Planes are not flying either. So that's actually helped improve local air quality But it is very important to say. The weather plays a huge role in your local air pollution. So if it rains you know it clears the air and the spring typically is not like the summer. It's not our worst season for air pollution. Other places actually though haven't really seen much of a drop because there are things like factories and refineries that are still emitting and you know trucks are still on the roads. Goods are still being delivered to stores. Right I understand you've been talking with some scientists who are studying the effect of having so few cars on the road and the well. What are they trying to understand? Exactly yeah I mean. This is a particular interest in cities that have really problematic air and in those cities you know. They have to try to figure out. What can we change to improve air quality? I mean this is actually kind of just a real world test of that one. Scientists told me that you know this would be like if in Los Angeles for example. A third of the cars on the road were switched to all electric cars. Don't burn gasoline. They get electricity and in California. A lot of that comes from solar and renewable. So it's cleaner. We have one listener. Who wants to know whether this pandemic environmental damage? Here's Valerie in Arizona. We hear a lot about the air pollution being reduced but not much about the increase fiction styrofoam especially in food service. What about the possible? Negative effects on the environment from Corona virus. That's a good point. All these restaurants that have switched to delivery or takeout. That's a lot of plastic. Yeah I think people are seeing a lot more containers. People are also seeing masks and plastic gloves kind of thrown on the grounds. I think the pandemic is affecting our efforts to reduce plastic waste For Example California. Just put a sixty day pause on its plastic bag ban and that's out of concern for frontline workers right. They're the ones that are handling people's reusable grocery bags when they bring them into the store. Starbucks also is is not refilling those reusable coffee mugs for that same reason. It's about reducing exposure and are groups. You know they've been largely supportive of these temporary measures because people's lives are on the line but I think they're keeping a close eye to make sure that these are actually temporary measures. Right and these larger initiatives to reduce plastic waste kind of comeback at some point if you have a question for NPR's Lawrence Somerset to us at NPR dot org slash national conversation or on twitter use the HASHTAG NPR conversation and our next listener question comes from Laura Intel Keaton Alaska. What effect is this virus having on? Wildlife? I'm thinking of the fact that there's less people out and about and that means there's more room for wildlife I've seen some photos of a Lotta ducks resting in a parking lot while bores and sheep walking down the street. There's a lot of this on social media. Is it just that were home more? So we see the animals more or the animals actually coming out in places that they didn't ordinarily yeah. I mean that's hard to tell right. A lot of us are kind of just looking out the window. Maybe seeing things we didn't see before but some of it is a hoax. Right on social media you know. Maybe you saw those dolphins that were. They weren't actually there. Yeah I'm sorry about that but this they're actually real effects. Scientists are trying to study. You know I spoke to one wildlife rescue center in California. That said you know right now. It's seal and sea lion pumping season. You know every year some pups are concerned because of human interference like people or maybe dogs getting too close and so they're kind of that this year they merely a reprieve for them because some beaches are closed Another really good example is Wales. There's just less shipping traffic right now. And so. The oceans are less and wheels are very sensitive to sound. It's actually Something scientists after nine eleven because there was also a drop in shipping traffic and scientists could actually measure that stress hormones in right. Whales went down during that time period. Interesting we got a question about what's happening to environmental regulations during the pandemic Mike in Portland writes to the EPA suspended environmental rules so companies. Don't have to follow them any longer. Lauren Bizarre Policy Change while everyone was focused on the disease. Yeah in in March the EPA announced that it would not be finding companies if they failed to report their pollution data during the pandemic so an example of this might be that a refinery is reporting. It's air emissions to make sure that they're complying with Federal Clean Air Laws. The agency said that this needed to happen. Because the pandemic is making it harder for staff to collect the safety data and and do social distancing at the same time environmental groups really push back quite strongly. They felt this was too broad. It sent a message to industries. That maybe they would have the freedom to break environmental laws if no one was really checking during this time period just on our final moments so many of the changes were talking about depend on social distancing when the economy returns to something like normal are the gains. We've seen going to be reversed right so we all are starting to get back in our cars and fly. Go back to work industries ramping. Up You expect these of short-term Games are going to go away. I think there's some hope that the behavioral change though like maybe we'll all work from home it's possible. Npr Science correspondent Lawrence Summer. Thanks for answering these questions tonight. Thanks
Robert Caro on How He Does It
"Robert Carroll joins us now he is the Pulitzer Prize. Winning author of many books. New Book is called working researching interviewing and writing. He's also the author of the years of Lyndon Johnson four volumes of them thus far and the powerbroker Robert Moses and the fall of New York Bob. Thanks so much for being here. Pleasure to be here all right so everyone has been greatly anticipating a volume five of the years of Johnson. But instead you have written this other book working researching interviewing writing. Why did you decide to do this? Ever since the powerbroker I kept myself out of the book. I don't think the word I appears in there many times. If soon as the book came out people started asking me. What was it like ten of you Robert Moses and I realized that I should have put in something to tell people what that was like so for like forty five years. I've been hearing that question and people ask me what it's like to work in presidential libraries were. Can you find out from interviews? This isn't the adviced anybody but it's sort of. I said we'll I WANNA give people some glimpses into how I work so. I took time out to do this book now. I'm back doing the volume. I mean it's an interesting question about interviewing Robert Moses because you had read five sessions which women seven sessions with him. Which was very different from the Johnson. Biography where he was dead already for several years. Before you could get started and I'm curious you write about it a bit in working what the difference was like for you. Writing the book writing a biography of a person who was still alive versus writing a biography of someone who was already gone in one sense. It's great to write about someone who's still alive because you get to meet Moses. Didn't talk to me for the first couple of years of the book. Then we had seven interviews. Soon as I started asking questions. Pamela the interviews were over but they will long sessions and I really got to look at him with Johnson. You felt okay. I came along just too late. He had died just three years before was great about him was that he died so young he would have been only sixty seven when I started. He darted sixty four that everyone was still alive. He had I think twelve people in Johnson City High School. When he was there they were all there to be viewed. But you can't make up for not meeting and talking to the person writing about you just can't do feel that absence and working on the Johnson. Yes you do everything you can to overcome that you know you interview the people closest to him over and over and over again constantly asking them what was he like. If I was standing next to you what would I see him doing? So you try to get a feeling of him now. We have these telephone transcripts where you hear him talking hundreds and hundreds of hours you can listen to him talking and see how he deals with people and how he gets what he wants from people. That's always amazing to me. Has that changed the way that you've been doing your research having access to those types a change the writing of history in general like on the Gulf of Tonkin incident which has been sort of mystery. What really happened there. How many attacks were there? On our destroyers. You know that led Johnson to launch these launch bombing attacks on North Vietnam. Now you actually hear the communications between Robert McNamara. The Secretary of Defense Cincpac the admiral at Honolulu and the commander of the fleet. That's an in Viet Nam. You hear this and what was really going on in real time the other aspect of your interviewing that. I thought was so interesting that you write about in this new book working is the delicacy of interviews and especially when you get to touchy subjects. And they'll you didn't interview Johnson for the book did Interview Lady Bird and tell the story about how you and when you approached the subject of Johnson's longtime affair with Alice Marsh. Well when Johnson is in the Pacific during World War. Two year allowed easing Australia. You're allowed one telephone. Call the senator from Texas. Just Johnson has to decide whether to run again for the House of Representatives or to run for senator. I'm going through all the correspondents and suddenly in the middle of it. There is a telegram from someone sewing. Alice I've never heard of Alice. She appears in no book and it says Lyndon everyone else that happened to me in the White House. Everyone else thinks you should run for the Senate. I think you should run for the house. Please try to cool love Alice. I said WHO is Alice. Who was the person that he makes the only one telephone call? And who's giving political advice which he follows shortly after that? So that's you know. An example of going through the papers by luck her sister and best friend show up at the Johnson Library and ask to see me and I go down to see them and they say you know we wanna tell you about a woman named Alice Marsh. We don't want to portray to some Bimbo. She was really very important in Johnson's life. And they told me the whole story of this Lauren and significant relationship and his life. So how do you then? Ask Lady Bird. You know panel. That's the only interview I ever had in my life where I couldn't bring myself to look at the person I was interviewing. Alice was a small town girl. She turned herself into the brilliant Washington. Hostess Brilliant Brilliant Salons and she came from a little town called Morlin. Now no one would go to the mall. And unless they were looking for inflammation analysis a little town in the middle of nowhere and I never know I went up there and we learned about her. And how remarkable she was but all of a sudden we have a mutual friend. Who lived in Morlin? Who calls me in a panic and says the bird in Texas? Everybody Calls Lady Bird Bird. Bird and always. You've been in Marlin. So she knows you know about Al. Assad said well that had to be if it doesn't concern me but her secretary then shows up at my desk in the reading room says Mrs Johnson would like to see you out at the ranch this weekend. We had been meeting in her office so we sit down at the dining table. She's at the head of the table. I might her right. Hand my stenographer's notebook like like the one you use is is down on my right hand taking notes and without preamble. She starts to talk about Alice Quiz. How elegance she was how sophisticated she was how she taught. Linden things and everything that she taught him. He followed the rest of his life. You don't hear these lawn when she met him. He was this new congressman very awkward with Lorne Gang Leo Arms. She said turn them into an asset. Always wear shirts with French. Cuffs and very nice cufflinks. So when people's attention is cool to them it's called in in a in a good way. She told him. We're kind of Necktie to favor. Countess Myers Tie. But most of all at crucial elements in life. It was her advice that he followed an in a number of cases one in particular. It's not exaggerating. Very much to say she saved. His career is takes a moment to tell. But it's it's interesting his early careers financed by a very fierce huge Texas contractor. Herman Brown Brown and Root and Herman was prepared to keep financing his Roy and in return Johnson was getting huge contracts for Brown and root when all of a sudden they had a falling out Lyndon Johnson was getting them authorization to build a dam which they wanted but Linden wandered low. Rent Housing Project built in Boston in what was a very poor Mexican American neighborhood. The houses in that neighborhood were owned by Herman Brown. The tenants were paying rent to him. They were very profitable and he was enraged at Linden wanted to condemn them for his housing project and his chief lobbyist and his chief lawyer talked. Instead you know Herman was about to turn on Linden and when Herman turned on you he never turned back when Alice here is about this and invites them both down to Greatest Stadium Virginia. She sits down at her table. And says why don't you just compromise give Herman the damaging winds and the land and all of a sudden everything was okay. So Lady Bird starts talking not only about her elegance. She says the quotes are in the book. She was so sophisticated so beautiful. I remember her neck succession of wonderful beautiful dresses and me in well not so wonderful. And and then she said you know Lyndon Basically Linden always followed Alice's vice during that whole interview I have to say my head. Just stay down and I took notes. I couldn't look at her so that was done. The next week we went back to ordinary interview she just launched into it without you. Even though I you know I sometimes think I know something about politics. I'm really glad I don't have to write about. Women never understood why she did

Okay well we're just GONNA take the loss and just give you a new one so the car that you bought rubber broken four times. Yeah I mean it works but it's just kind of user error. No it's not user air. No it's it's great and it's just every time time it always happens right when I get right when I get home from like a long period of not being here and I haven't been able to drive live and then I get in it like at the airport and then it it breaks on the way home like you just trying to get home right by. TV does that enough. Like I'm ready to get home. I've been out the only time I need to use it. It didn't work and watch the office and just chilling then.

The ban guys had already rehearsed a couple of days and then they had to open. Go to New York like super last minute. That's pretty cool. Though right it was awesome and it was really awesome. It was it was definitely the coolest coolest list like filming thing experience that I've had what's it like walking into that space for the first time because you rehearse pre The day before or a couple of days so we went in. I mean two or three days. We were in New York for four days. And I can't imagine how. Jj was there heaps probably there for at least a week. Maybe maybe even the writing meetings he was in all the right meetings and changing the skits and everything like that so it was really cool because I grew up watching US L. With my dad and and so it was really neat. It was very surreal to be there in like C set so a conic you know and is awesome in You know definitely do it again. Do you do the first.

Yeah and you can't because normally I'm holding up here and he's like why can't see your face if you're holding up here so you got to just calm. But that was the only we note that he had but other than that it was great. Who did you ask to take pictures with? I didn't really ask. I'm not a big like I'm not a big like take the picture backstage guy you know unless it happens naturally Obviously me and JJ got a picture.
